TYPE OF CARPETS :
To begin with, let’s start with the type of carpets which are available in the market. Basically, there are 5 main categories of carpets, namely, Hand-knotted, hand-tufted, hand-woven, flat-weave and machine-made.
HAND KNOTTED: Hand-knotted carpets are made by skilled artisans who tie knot by knot to bring out an exquisite piece of carpet with appealing designs. This piece of rug comes as the amalgamation of the best of factors. The finest quality fibers (mainly raw hand spun wool & silk) are being woven together into an endless series of intricately hand tied knots to create marvellous designs & spectacular looks. These are the most expensive & most durable carpets. Hand-knotted rugs are more of an heirloom; something that passes on with generations. With a lasting legacy, they last for generations and hence comes as a great price.
HAND-TUFTED: Hand- tufted carpets are generally made up of wool however, these rugs aren’t as expensive as hand-knotted rugs for they don’t consume a huge time and energy as that which goes into the making of hand-knotted rug.
In fact, a hand-tufted rug is created by punching strands of wool on to a canvas frame with help of a hand conduct tufting gun. The hand tufted rugs come in a huge variety of designs. These rugs are beautiful to look at & are a pocket-friendly option for your home.
So if you are keen to bring an aesthetic piece of rug under an economic range, the hand-tufted rugs can be a better version.
HAND-WOVEN: Any floor carpet woven by hand comprises a hand-woven carpet which basically includes dhurries & kilims. These can be made up of wool, cotton or any synthetic material. The handwoven carpets are easy to clean & are quite durable too. As the construction of hand-woven carpets do not involve any strenuous labor & the raw material used isn’t very costly, these carpets are available at a very attractive price.
FLAT WEAVE: These rugs basically come in rich colours and intricate patterns which are known across the globe for their flexibility. Lacking the pile or a backing, they are light in nature.Also, these rugs are reversible and are easily used from both sides and this is the quality which make them favourite for all.
Flat weave carpets basically are a kind of hand-woven carpet which are created by weaving wool through the warp strings. These carpets are reversible & have zero pile. Flatweave carpets are preferred for places with heavy traffic. The customers prefer this quality of carpets as they are quite reasonable & good looking too.
MACHINE MADE CARPETS: Machine made carpets are generally made with blending wool with synthetic fibers. These carpets are stylish, eye-catchy & very much affordable as they are made using machines.
Coming in appealing designs and colours, their economic range make them preferential among other techniques of rug making.
TYPES OF FIBRES :
SILK: As silk makes the most delicate & expensive fibre, a lot of care is required in handling & procuring it as a silk fiber. Therefore, the use of silk as a raw material increases the price of the rug manifolds.
WOOL: Wool makes the most durable natural fibre for making rugs. Woollen rugs are comfortable, warm, easy to maintain and are quite expensive too.
Jute: Other natural fibers like jute are also widely used in the Indian market to make carpets. A Jute carpet is low maintenance one and is available at a very reasonable price.
SYNTHETIC FIBRES: Synthetic fibers like polyethylene, polyamide product, polyester, acrylic and art silk are majorly used to create machine-made carpets. The fibers render a beautiful look to the carpet & are very much in a common man’s budget.
DESIGN OF THE CARPET:
The intricacy of the design of a carpet also determine the cost of the carpet. For instance, a hand knotted rug with a complex design & higher kpsi (knots per square inch) will any day cost more than a carpet with simple design & lesser kpsi. This is because of a simple reason that higher kpsi rugs need more number of skilled hands to tie higher number of knots than the rugs with simple design.
SIZE OF THE CARPET:
For obvious reasons, the size of a carpet does affect its price too; the bigger the size of the rug, the higher goes its cost as there are more number of days and skilled hands which goes into the making of these rugs.
